Re: Google .... WHY??
This is no different than a host of other Google products, like iGoogle (which I LOVED, and will miss dearly come November), Talk, Reader, Health, Knol, Picnik, Buzz, Aardvark, Sidewiki, Notebook, Dictionary, Labs, Wave, Searchwiki, Dodgeball, Jaiku, Lively, Answers, Page Creator, Zeitgeist, etc., etc., etc.
At least they try stuff, way more than the stagnant behemoths like Microsoft, some of it fails, and some of it works. Microsoft has had some decent services with potential that dies, look at Docs.com, the Surface tablet, Mediaroom, Kin Studio, or Courier.
I would rather stick with Google, at least their solutions are mostly open standards and developer friendly.Current Phones: Google Nexus 4 on Aio Wireless (Beanstalk Official KitKat ROM) / LG G2 on Verizon (Stock KitKat/rooted)

Re: Google .... WHY??
My family actually does use Latitude all the time. We are a combo of Android and iPhone and Latitude worked GREAT for all of us. I do know there is a function right now that can be used in Google+ that is similar Latitude, called locator but that locator button is not yet available in the iPhone app, the location on the map is not nearly as detailed as Latitude and a satellite view is not available. Right now it is very disappointing.~Janet~
